Education

“There are two main reasons we use Bouma, the first is integrity. Few firms have greater integrity than Bouma. Second, they add value in just about everything you can think of. They look at what the final use of the building is going to be and determine how to create an effective environment with the greatest quality feel in a way that’s not only cost effective, but time effective.”

– JC Huizenga, Director, National Heritage Academies, Grand Rapids, Michigan

“It is with confidence that I highly recommend the services of Bouma Construction. Their interactions with us in complex processes were always accurate, truthful and knowledgeable. A can-do attitude and ability to turn around major work under varying conditions was critical to our efforts to build Catholic Schools. ”

– Dr. Darr Guernsey, Headmaster, Ave Maria Grammar and Preparatory School, Ave Maria, Florida

Healthcare

“The [Barix Clinic of Arizona] was unique because of the distance involved. Bouma was still able to accomplish its usual good job, even though they were working with different subcontractors than they typically work with. Bouma is very customer oriented and has very high standards. Despite the distance, we still brought the hospital in under budget and ahead of schedule.”
– Dennis Miller, Corporate Facility Manager Engineer, Forest Health Services (parent company of Barix Clinics)

Retail

“Bouma is our contractor of choice. They are a trusted partner that we depend upon for advice and performance from project conception through completion. Bouma has established long-term working relationships with leading companies in West Michigan and throughout the nation.”
– Art O’Strander, Spartan Stores Director of Design & Construction

Commercial

“They make my job easy. Once we got started, I saw the value in Bouma and everything they brought to the table – not only their knowledge and skills, but their commitment to the customer. They will drop anything to help us out at Herman Miller.”
– Barry Warfield of Herman Miller
